Week 6:: Cinderella
This week we were challenged to photograph our subject from a low angle. Saturday I found myself reorganizing linen closets and dejunking bathroom drawers — when was the last time you threw out expired medications? WOW! One step into my children’s bathroom and it was clear, fresh towels and a quick wipe down of the sink was not going to cut it. The preschooler really wanted to help and there was no convincing her otherwise. So while I scrubbed the floor and toilet, she cleaned the mirror. Scrubbing the floors and keeping a careful watch of my little one walking back and forth on the bathroom counter was just the perspective I needed to capture this weeks picture.
Here’s where you can find other photo’s taken for the challenge – A Step in the Journey.
I’ve kept up with my personal photography challenge … keeping my camera in MANUAL mode. I want to say that it’s been great, and I haven’t missed AUTO at all, but that would be a lie. In truth, it’s been a lesson in extreme patience and I miss AUTO terribly. I am no where near the speed and accuracy I need to be to capture the pictures I want of my never hold still children. But I am sticking with it and making do with the slightly-off pictures I take and trying to let go of twinge of sadness when I miss shot or ruin it by under or over exposing it.
